Organize your Marriage

Life is busy and demanding.  If we aren’t careful it’s easy for one’s marriage to take a back seat.

Your marriage and your relationship is important!  It should come first, before your children, career, friends and hobbies.

How do you put your husband first?

Put up pictures to celebrate your marriage . . .

Even though your marriage is one of your highest priorities it doesn’t have to take the majority of your time.  My children, housekeeping, friends, church, and volunteer work take 90% of my time but I save 10% for my husband.

Keep your marriage strong by doing the little things.

My mama always gave me the following advice:

Whatever your husband asks you to get done, then put that at the top of your list. If he asks you to iron his shirt, make dinner, or pay a bill then do that one thing!  Put that item at the top of your list, even if you don’t think it’s that important.  Even if you only get that one thing done that day, it was a success because you put your husband first.”

How do you make your husband a priority when you are juggling so many responsibilities?

Here are some ways to help keep the romance alive in your marriage!

Create love regions in your home that celebrate your marriage.

Create a love nook . . . this is a shelf with love notes my husband and I wrote to eachother, a crown he bought me, and a small love diary.

Other ideas include:  Having a daily love ritual such as a walk, drinking Herbal tea, couch time . . .

Remember what my mama always says, “Somedays I don’t need the walk, and my husband doesn’t need the walk, but the marriage needs a walk, so we walk.”

Go on a weekly date night.  You will get to strengthen your marriage and not focus on the children which will give you the break you need.

A final marriage tip:

If you are not feeling the romance then it’s up to YOU to bring it back. Don’t wait for your spouse to write a card, send a loving text, give service, date you or compliment you.  You get planning your romance.  Don’t worry about what he gives you in return.

Even making your bed could be a little love ritual you do for your marriage.  Think how inviting your bedroom will look.  For more tips see bedroom organization.

The amazing secret is that when you do loving things for your spouse, you’ll fall in LOVE with him again.

Try it for a month and see if it works.

Remember how it says in Matthew 6: 3-4 “But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.”

Find ways to serve your spouse, find ways to put him first, and start thinking what you can do for him today!
